- 5 Most Popular Linux-hackable Gadgets
Linux is a powerful and versatile operating system that can be utilized to hack just about any electronic hardware device. To prove it, I have here a list of popular gadgets that are already known to run Linux.

- NASA Uses Ubuntu
He and I walked back over behind the guy to look. I pointed out the little bit of the heron you could see at the bottom of the screen, and he said “yep, it’s Hardy.” Then he added, “look what else he’s running.” “What?” “Compiz. You can see the shadows on the panels.”

- Nicaragua: Open Source Software in Public Institutions
The blogger LEOGG has been working with public institutions to take full advantage of these technologies in order to make them more efficient. In his post “Nicaragua Libre” (Free Nicaragua), LEOGG explains how they helped Jalapa, a rural town near the border of Honduras in the north of the country how to develop and use Linux-based software.

- KDE 4.1 RC1 – Yet Another Top Release
So another succesful release, I really think that anyone who hasn’t switched because they thought that it wasn’t mature enough at KDE 4.0 release, its about time to consider it. 4.1 is not only mature, but it’s also stable. Soon enough, the beauty of the KDE 4 series is going to start to outshadow competition, and with the desktop experience being most important to the end user, more smaller businesses and casual home users might start to switch, just to see KDE 4. The more real information there is about what Linux and KDE are, and what KDE looks and feels like, the more people will want to use it.
- KDE 4.1. The promise of a better future!
- Plasma Embedded
My job was to install Linux on it. And I did just that – Debian GNU/Linux with KDE 4.1 beta which is in Debian’s experimental repositories. I hooked the system to my screen so that you can see what it looks like (although it was a bit odd to hook something like this to a 19″ screen). It behaves surprisingly well – the system is responsive and works very well (with all fancy Plasma animations).

- Queensland to investigate open source capability
When a genre of software is estimated to account for 15 percent of the total revenue generated by a given sector of the IT industry and that total is $A3.5 billion, then it is time to sit up and take notice.
Which is what the government of the Australian state of Queensland has done. Queensland, which styles itself as the “smart state”, has provided funding to research company Longhaus to “identify the current and growing capabilities within Queensland’s ICT industry” of the open source sector.
